Sexual propagation

Segment: 8. Plant Culture & Propagation, Standard: Demonstrate plant propagation techniques. (Technical II.C.1) Demonstrate plant propagation techniques. (Pathway II.C.4)


Sexual plant propagation encompasses topics and concepts such as pollination, seed production, and planting. Sexual plant propagation produces plants that are genetically different from the two parent plants.  In the area of pollination, discuss different types of pollinators, such as wind, water, insects, animals, and people. A discussion of seeds could cover differences between monocot and dicot seeds, seed dispersal methods, methods of breaking dormancy, the planting and germination differences between various types of seeds, and seedling emergence and care.
